The voters have spoken

It’s a good time to be an incumbent mayor, judging from the results in a lot of municipal elections Tuesday.  Incumbent mayors in Manchester, Concord, Rochester, Keene and Berlin were all re-elected.  Challenger Dana Hilliard defeated incumbent Matt Spencer in the Somersworth mayor’s race, however, and it was a big upset in Portsmouth where incumbent Mayor Eric Spear was lost to Assistant Mayor Robert Lister.  No incumbents were running in Laconia, where Ed Engler is the new mayor, or Dover where voters went with Karen Weston.
